A sleigh bed-frame is characterized by a headboard and footboard that curl at the top of each corner. This shape is reminiscent of a sleigh and hence the name sleigh bed. Typically sleigh bed-frames are made from carved wood with expensive models having hand carved curls. The sleigh bed frame originated in France and is available as single or double beds. Americans fell in love with this unique design and started manufacturing sleigh beds. The sleigh bed-frame usually curls outwards so make sure your bedroom space takes into account this extra projection.
Most bed frames are made of either wood or metal and either one is suitable. Generally a wooden frame will look best with a wood headboard and a metal frame with metal but this depends on the style of headboard and how much of the frame will be seen. No matter what material you choose you will need to make sure that headboard and footboard if applicable will properly connect to the frame. Most headboards can adjust to fit the frames that vary slightly in height but this will depend on what the headboard is made out of and what size it is. By measuring in advance you can be confident that your new bed frame and the existing headboard will work together.
